Description
Annie's Song by Catherine Anderson
THE GIFT

Annie Trimble lives in a solitary world that no one enters or understands. As delicate and beautiful as the tender blossoms of the Oregon spring, she is shunned by a town that misinterprets her affliction. But cruelty cannot destroy the love Annie holds in her heart.

Alex Montgomery is horrified to learn his wild younger brother forced himself on a helpless "idiot girl." Tormented by guilt, Alex agrees to marry her and raise the babe she carries as his own. But he never dreams he will grow to cherish his lovely, mute, misjudged Annie--her childlike innocence, her womanly charms and the wondrous way she views her world. And he becomes determined to break through the wall of silence surrounding her--to heal...and to healed by Annie's sweet song of love.

I just finished reading Annie's Song by Catherine Anderson. I have read this one before a few years ago. I think that this was truly a love story. Annie is twenty years old and is deaf. Her family already has several older daughters who have married and moved out. But here is the one daughter who will never marry or make them proud because of her affliction. People call her idiot girl and make fun of her, but she taught herself to read lips. That is one thing she keeps hidden from everyone. Free spirited Annie wears old fashioned clothes and runs wild in the woods near her home. She feels safe around the woodland. One day her little world is shattered when a man sexually assaults her thinking that she can't tell because she can't talk. The hero in this story is Alex Montgomery, who is the brother of Annie's attacker. Alex is very angry and horrified that his younger brother has done this terrible deed. Alex throws his brother out of the house and tells him never to come back. But Alex has to marry Annie so her baby will have a name. He thinks this his duty will be done in a marriage in name only. But his heart is indeed attached once he gets to know Annie and what she has been through. This is one of the best books and I hope you will read it.
